Jane's mother dies when she is born, and her father, a rich English aristocrat, soon remarries to a woman with a son, William, who despises his new father and brother. George and Jane grow up with a dream to make a flying machine. George believes the distant Asian sands hold a secret: a mysterious cerulean sand which can make machines fly. He goes on an expedition to find it, and soon is reported executed for treason. William disappears too. After she recieves an unsigned letter holding a handful of pale-blue sand which floats in the air, Jane is sure her brother is alive and leaves to the East to find him and prove him innocent. There are many mysteries to unravel in store for Jane and her new friends on her journey. But perhaps a mystery should forever remain a mystery...

First of all, I would like to say that this is my first review. I may not answer all of your questions, but I will try.

I found Patapata Hikousen no Bouken to be a very enjoyable anime. The characters swept me off my feet right from the start, and the story was just as good. This would be a good show to watch with the family; adults can find several hints at the ending that would be missed by children, and there is little swearing, and no nudity.

Story: 9/10
The plot had many twists and turns that made each episode interesting in its read more
